A weather pattern that's been in place for weeks won't change any time soon. We're seeing weak system after weak system with various warm fronts and cold fronts ushering in some serious heat at times and even a period of much cooler weather like we're in right now, with chances of rain nearly every day. We're currently tracking our next wave of rain that held off for much of Friday that will now mean more rain into Independence Day on Saturday. Most forecasts right now call for the rain to end by midday and fade to a few isolated if any showers by Saturday night. This means morning outdoor plans may contain rain, but the further we move through the day rain chances are expected to decrease. Look for only a slight chance of an isolated shower by 9PM Saturday night.
Rain chances are very slim on Sunday as temperatures are expected to warm back into the mid 80s, but humidity will still stay fairly nice. Heat and humidity are back next week, peaking around Tuesday and Wednesday with highs around 90°. Right now, the 2 possible storm days are forecast to be Monday and Wednesday.
